One person has died and another is hurt in hospital after a crash near Bodmin.
It happened on the A30 between Temple and Four Winds on Tuesday afternoon.
A box van and lorry were involved in the collision on the single stretch of carriageway.
The air ambulance was called to get one of the casualties to Treliske.
Police have been at the scene through the night trying to work out what happened.
The stretch was shut for hours for investigation work to be carried out, but has now been reopened.
A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue said: "Pumping appliances from Bodmin and Lauceston and the Rescue Tender from Bodmin are in attendance of a road traffic collision on the westbound carriageway of the A30 Bodmin Moor.
"Police and ambulance are also in attendance."
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At approximately 3.50pm on Tuesday 8th July a two vehicle road traffic collision occurred on the A30 Blisland, Cornwall.
"A Ford Luton Van driven by a 26 year old man from the Bristol area was travelling eastbound along the A30 in a single carriageway stretch of the road.
"For unknown reasons at this time he veered into the opposite carriageway and collided with an HGV travelling westbound driven by a 57 year old man from the Bristol area.
"The driver of the Luton Van was sadly pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the HGV was airlifted to Treliske hospital with non life threatening injuries.
"Weather was dry at the time but there had been rain, road conditions were drying up and the visibility was good.
"Police from the Serious Collisions Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses to this incident and ask that anyone with information please contact them on 101 quoting police reference 20140708-0514."
